Salad Sauce

  • salt
  • chilli
  • juice of 1 lemon

Hummus:

  • 1 can of chickpeas*  (+ apple vinegar, garlic, salt)

*Buy them in a glass instead of a can (if possible) due to heavy metals that can harm your body.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cook the pasta.
  2. While the pasta is cooking: chop the cucumber, pepper, the olives, mango and avocados and put it with the corn, beans and carrots in a large bowl.
  3. Add parsley, coriander and a handful of the chickpeas.
  4. Pour the juice of 1 lemon over the salad.
  1. Make a hummus with the remaining chickpeas: Blend the chickpeas with 2 teaspoons of apple vinegar, a bit salt and 2 garlic cloves.
  2. When the pasta is done rinse it and add a bit of olive oil and salt to it. When it has completely cooled down: add it to the salad bowl.
  3. Now top your salad with humus, chili and maybe some salt and it’s lunch /dinner (breakfast?) time! 🙂

coconut energy bliss balls

IMG_0560


Hello friends! I present you my current favorite thing to snack on: bliss balls! They are really easy to make and only contain 4 ingredients. As always try to only use organic and fresh products and consume the bliss balls within 3 days (which shouldn’t be a problem at all). I love eating them as a mid-morning snack or after exercising. They are extremely filling and nourishing and did I mentioned it yet? They are delicious!!!! I hope you like them as well. 🙂

Ingredients

 

for about 8 small bliss balls

  • 10 dates
  • 2 tbsp coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp cashews (optional: soak them overnight)
  • 1 tbsp vegan organic rice protein powder

Instruction

  1. It couldn’t be easier: just blend everything in a mixer – I just had a hand held blender, which had quite a rough time to mix those ingredients, but it proves that you don’t need a super duper blender to create all that fancy food.
  2. Roll the dough into balls.
  3. Give them a nice bad in a bowl full of coconut shreds.
